I Feel Disconnected

    Like A Half Forgotten Dream

    I feel so far away lately, and have for a long time. Like I'm emotionally and mentally not here. There have been times throughout my life when I've felt this, usually just when something fun or exciting is happening, and a lot of what should be enjoyable memories have just...

    It is not that you are disconnected.

    You are buying into society by saying so. Those who feel as if they are 'disconnected' just happen to live and breathe on a higher wavelength of energy. They will never know what it feels like. They are the ones that are disconnected. We are the ones who truly are connected...

    Making Friends Is a Chore

    I have old friends, the guys I knew back in school - it took me almost all of secondary school to forge a bond with them, and I do feel like part of a group with a shared past and identity, but we're all over the country at uni now and I need local friends. I don't understand why...

    I've always been shy.

    When I was a kid I never really talked to anyone. I've never had friends. I hung around with people in high school, but was never close with anyone. I was going to say more but I won't go on, basically I just feel disconnected from society. There's no point to a human who can't...

    From Other People

    It's funny to think about all of the things we have now in order to connect with other people and stay connected. And hell if you can't make connections to other people in real life (which everyone seems to be incapable of doing now) there is the internet, where you can pretty...

    I can't make local friends, I can't keep long distance lovers (some solely online first, dumped five times since 1998) and people flinch at either my intellect, disability, non-stereotypical opinion on "relationships" or pansexuality.I'm starting a new connection for outsiders...

    ?!

    When I reach out to someone, I feel farther away from them than I did before. When I try to love someone, they pull away. When I try to connect, people become more distant. I wonder what I am doing so wrong. Am I really so scary that people want to go away?

    I am starting to worry

    that I am not really connected to anyone in my life. People in my life can play vital roles in my times of need, be good company, share ideas, etc, but if one of them died, it would be a shame, but not much more. When my grandad died, it didnt really bother me, the thing that...

    Far Away

    Everyone has always felt far, far away, even though people are drawn to me. People of all kinds, especially those who lost their world, those who are broken. For some reason, I must have been meant as merely an observer rather than a friend. Because I often find that these people...
